WATG Honolulu office location black and white

With WATG being founded in 1945 in Waikiki, our continued growth precipitated a move to our downtown Honolulu office in the Topa Financial Center in 1997. Our fantastic views of the water and the mountains get our creative minds working and ignite the island spirit. With Lion Dancers at Chinese New Year and year round aloha attire, our warm hospitable culture permeates our design of the guest experience.
